It was interesting to see outside the tourist areas of Lima on the drive to the archaeological site.
The tour stopped at the arts district of Barranco on the way to the site which was good to see the Bridge of sighs, a tourist site in the city. The actual site was interesting but a lot of the ruins are in quite bad condition. If you have a free morning in Lima you might as well go and have a look at it. Also the tour runs longer that it states so keep that in mind if you have organised something for the afternoon.

The tour was organized well. Pickup was punctual, but lasted more than the advertised time so it is not a good idea to plan anything important right after this tour within an hour of the planned return. The guide spoke with clarity, gave an informative tour of the temple. The Pachacamac itself was interesting for its history,

The tour was very informative I received an education not only in pre-Inca Peruvian history, but also in the sociology of life on the outskirts of a large 3rd world city. I could wish that the goernment of Peru had done more to prepare the ruins at Pachacamac for tourists the museum is not complete and the tour is constrained by a lack of facilities. I'm sure it will be better in 5-10 years....

The tour came with a bonus consisting of a short visit to the historical neighborhood of Barranca on our way to the archeological site. Our guide was very helpful and answered all of our questions. The information she provided were general without going into details. I would have liked to hear more about the site's astronomy and cosmological significance given that the Inca were fascinated with the Sun/stars. Except a short hike around the Temple of the Sun the tour is by bus with multiple stops. This is were I would have liked to be allowed to enter at least one of the buildings to better see the achievements of the ancient inhabitants. I understand this is a problem that the Peruvian authorities should deal with and I hope that in the future they will allow at least partial access. The site is magnificent and simply viewing it from the outside leaves you unsatisfied.

Nice small group (about 12). Very interesting site, but I would have liked to chance to go into the museum. Also, I would have liked more information/interpretation from the guide, or even a brochure telling more about the site would have been nice.

There is a lot to see at this site beginning with the museum exhibit, the Temple of the Sun, and the Temple of the Moon. A bit of a hike to get to the Sun Temple but well worth it with spectacular views of the coast on one side and the fields on the other.

Overall, this was a good trip. There is no shade and quite a bit of climbing involved. It would be nice if people were warned of this beforehand.

A little chaotic at the loading point after being picked up on time from our Hotel. We were directed to the wrong bus but things were finally sorted out. Guide was very knowledgeable and we learn't a lot about pre-inka history. Overall good valve.

This was a great tour once we finally got to go. On our initial tour date the tour guide didn't wait for us and we had to reschedule and pay an additional 50% penalty. We were told that our pick up was between 9:15 and 9:45. We got to the lobby at 9:17 and waited until 10:15. The guide claimed to have waited 10 minutes then left. It may have been a miscommunication between the hotel and guide, but be up 10 minutes prior to your designated meet time or they will leave you if you are not there.

The tour guide was very informative and a really nice man. He told us a lot not just about the site but about Peru in general (economy etc), which was quite interesting. Overall we really enjoyed the tour.

The tour was great and the guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The ride from our hotel up to the ruins was about 40 minutes. The guide drove us to all of the places of interest at the ruins so we didnt have to walk through the - the site is huge. Nice job!

This tour was really helpful because not only did we get a tour of an ancient archaeological site, but on our way to Pachacamac we were taken to different areas that area popular among tourists and locals. This kind of gave us an idea of other places we could visit in our free time. The tour in Pachacamac itself was not very long, but our guide fed us a lot of informational about the history and what the different building were for. She was also able to tell us fun myths and stories. Overall it was a great day and our morning pick up was on time.
